Word of the day challenge. Itching.

The only reason I am itching to take part in the word of the day challenge is to attempt to create a ping back as it always seems so ridiculously complicated and it it far easier to copy the RRL ? at the top of the page and put that in the comments section.

I received the following description from Dee Kelly and as yet have not tried to create the pingback so it is with some trepidation that I am attempting to make head nor tails of the description below.

If you want to try a pingback, it isn’t as complicated as it sounds. If you view your post as HTML then past this in: Commit that will create one. Then for each post you change the link to the day’s post (this part: https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2019/02/22/commit/) and change the word “Commit” to the word of the day.

I have no idea why I had to look at my post in HTML but it was as expected gobbledegook, so I came back to ordinary text and tried to change the word commit which was yesterdays word to todays word itching together with the change of date.

Whether doing this will have any effect as a pingback I have no idea but I will not put a link in the comments which means (I think!) that if any of you see this the thing above must have worked.

I am itching to see if it works but as a sceptical old bugger I'm not holding my breath waiting. I have a funny feeling I may have got the wrong end of the stick.
